Open Call for Artists: Coney Island Stillwell Avenue Mural
December 2, 2021
Over this past year, the Alliance for Coney Island is proud to have commissioned and installed a series of storefront gate murals spanning both the Surf Avenue/Amusement District and Mermaid Avenue/Commercial District in Coney Island. Thanks to support from the state, the Alliance is commissioning a mural for one specific location: the wall located on Stillwell Avenue between Surf and Mermaid Avenues and directly across from the Stillwell Avenue subway station. This wall is a high trafficked location, and this mural will serve as a major placemaking initiative for Coney Island.
Murals installed by the Alliance for Coney Island are a celebration of all that Coney Island has to offer. Home to over 350 businesses and 50,000 residents, Coney Island is a collection of independent businesses and attractions, from high-end restaurants, souvenir shops and amusement rides to smaller mom and pop businesses who are dedicated to serving our diverse community and visitors!
